old quebec

It wasn’t all mountains and swimming for us while we were gone.  We also hit the city and probably hiked more than we did in the woods.   My feet are still recovering.   We had so much fun exploring old Quebec.  The highlight was catching the cirque du soleil perform under a bunch of converging overpasses after the sun set for the day.  Get this – they do it five nights a week all summer for FREE!   If you’ve ever seen a cirque du soleil show, you will understand how amazing this is.    Quebec City is magical at night.   We strolled up and down the stone-paved streets until midnight each night.  When we returned to our hotel, we would brush our teeth and fall into our beds.  Mornings were spent inhaling pain chocolat and coffee.   It was gold.   Who needs to cross the Atlantic when you have a little bit of France within a day’s drive?

    Gorgeous photos, Nadine. LOVE them. I’ve been to Montreal a few times, but old Quebec has always scared me because my french SUCKS. How did you find that?

  6. Lucky you. I missed that show, because it was at the same time as the show projected onto the silos. Like you, we sent the day walking through Old Quebec and it was amazing. The architecture, shops, museums, street performs… Gotta love it!
